Time To Go To Crawford

-- by Dave Johnson

It's time to think about going to Crawford, Texas, if you can.

From a Daily Kos diary, They WERE Chanting WE DON'T CARE!

There are 50-60 counter-protesters set up on the other side of the road, the police have been joined by Secret Service who have their vehicles parked in between the two groups in the triangular area that was made off limits.

Tracy says they are chanting WE DON'T CARE!!

From Peace In Pink Shoes, which is blogging from Crawford, Counter Protesters have arrived
"We have counter protesters showing up a little at a time, carrying little American flags and attempting to agitate the peaceful protesters. We have 5 law enforcement vehicles including county, city, state & SS. The media is on site. People are still being shuttled back and forth to the CPH. Ward & Andrea are heading back to CPH because they are sick like Annie was yesterday.

At the top of the triangle where the counter protesters are getting out of the car, is the same location where the vets & military families are. It's almost as if they are deliberately picking that location to cause agitation."

Here are some of the comments from the Right about Cindy Sheehan:

BITCH OF THE SUMMER: CINDY SHEEHAN,

Cindy Sheehan is a fool.
The California liberal connection, which includes the network-news divisions of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and of course CBS, have found a symbol for their hatred of George Bush--it is the bitch, Sheehan, who lives in California.
LGF:
Cindy Sheehan’s puppet masters include the Crawford Peace House, a virulently antisemitic group that features a photo on their home page of a map of the mythical country of “Palestine” being replaced by the state of Israel.
GOPUSA:
Sadly, Ms. Sheehan appears to be becoming unhinged by her grief and a too close association with anti-American wingnuts.
Cindy Sheehan, I Loathe:
She and the Left are still dhimmis, and knowingly or unknowingly are willing to sacrifice the lives and future of all Americans in order to satisfy their uninformed agenda. And in the process, Cindy Sheehan continues to virtually spit upon her son's sacrifice, his good name, and the nation for which he sacrificed his life.


National talk-show host Neal Boortz:

Yesterday, President Bush came out and acknowledged Cindy Sheehan and said that he wasn't going to pull the troops out of Iraq. Sadly, this will not stop avowed media whore Mrs. Sheehan from maintaining her vigil outside Bush's Crawford ranch. [. . .] Looks like what's really going on here is that Cindy Sheehan has a few screws loose and her family knows it. Perhaps that would explain the complete 180 she did from last year, when she was praising President Bush, to this year, when she was bashing him.

I wish I could go to Texas and join Cindy, but I know I'd last about 10 minutes in that heat. I can't tell you how much I admire her, and how much contempt this gives me for Bush and the stupid, insensitive thugs who are doing their best to discredit her. Why don't they go to Iraq and fight, since they feel so strongly about this, instead of picking on her?

We've just had a long, sad funeral here for a NY policeman killed in Iraq. He's from a family with a long tradition of police/military service, and even they are asking WHY? Honorable service for one's country is one thing: one's country killing off its young in a meaningless war is quite something else. WHY are we in Iraq? It can't even be for oil, considering the rising cost of oil.

What in Hell are we doing, and WHY are we doing it?
